I haven’t gotten in the habit of keeping track of when special days or months are related to social justice topics so it took me by surprise when I discovered that July is Disability Pride month!
Given that, I quickly changed my publishing schedule around to prioritize a big disability-related project I had been working on but… it’s not done yet. So in the mean time, in lieu of a new blog post this week, I thought I’d offer you a compilation of my favorite articles about disability, chronic illness, and mental health that I’ve written over the years.
